The APD Emergency Department provides diagnostic and treatment services for patients presenting with a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Patients may be discharged immediately following emergency treatment or, for more serious conditions, may be transferred to another medical facility for additional medical attention. Our staff of physicians and nurses provides fast, accessible, professional, and compassionate care for the residents of the Upper Valley, around the clock.

When you arrive in the Emergency Department, our staff will assess you to obtain a sense of the seriousness of your symptoms. This process is known as triage. It is an effective system that enables us to prioritize the order in which patients are seen. Critically ill patients are assessed by a registered nurse and seen by a physician within minutes of their arrival. Our goal is to have all patients who come to the ER seen by a health care provider within 30 minutes of their triage.
APD is not a tertiary care center but treats patients to stabilize more serious conditions and, if necessary, admit you to the hospital or arrange for skilled medical staff to transport you to a Level 1 Trauma Center.
